First Time Really Crappie Fishing

Ray took his son, myself, and my son fishing Saturday. This was the first time anyone taught me to fish for crappiei. I have attempted this before in the past, but I did not have anyone to show me the proper technique or even the proper places to look for crappie.

I previously really only fished for bass and catfish. I grew up fishing for catfish in our ponds and loved it. Bass fishing was something I picked up later. I have fished for both species for many years, but I fish so little that I would be bragging to call myself a novice!

After this trip, I realized that I had no clue before and have walked away with a better understanding and appreciation for the art of crappie fishingi.

My thanks goes out to Ray for having the love for the sport and the patience to teach/introduce me to the sport of crappie fishingi. I hope to go again real soon.

I had a great time fishing with Shannon and the boys. We caught probably 60 crappiei so the action was fast. If you get the opportunity to introduce someone to crappie fishingi, I am sure as I have you will find the experience is great. Even more fun was watching the 2 boys get excited at catching every fish. I am confident these 2 would drop the video game for a trip to the lake anytime and that is in my opinion what we need more of.
